Exciting Ending

No. 24 Florida comes to town Sunday after a heartbreaking 70-69 loss at South Carolina last night.

The Gators (16-3, 3-1) were on their way to extending their win streak to 11 and had a seven point lead with 2:27 remaining... But South Carolina (13-4, 2-2) battled back and capitalized on the Florida’s inability to convert two one-and-one tries in the final 12 seconds to create one of the best finishes in college basketball this season.

Losses like that have to be gut-wrenching for a coach. I asked Kevin Stallings earlier today about the emotions a coach goes through after a difficult loss like that.

“It was one of the craziest finishes I’ve ever seen. It’s no fun to lose one like that. I’ve had it happen in the last second where the ball gets thrown the length of the floor. It’s a very frustrating feeling because you can go back and think of 900 things in that game that you could have done differently to have changed (the outcome). But the truth is you probably think there’s something you could have done about it, but there’s really nothing you could have done about it.”
